    This is a great tasting cookie! We shared a batch with our weekly Bible Study group, and they really liked the taste and the chewy-crunchy texture.

    We loved this cookie. I love the crispness of the cereal and the chewiness of the coconut. I generally do not care for coconut, but you really don't even taste it in these cookies. I halved the recipe and froze the extra dough.
